“Great place to have drinks and/or eat a great meal.”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Exposed brick, great location in the heart of the Vassar College scene. Culinary chef's preparing amazing food. Extensive beer and wine selection. This was my regular place to go and eat when I lived in NY. Great value for what you get. Flavorful food. Super cool place to patrionize.

“Great Comfy Foods!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Excellent SERVICE, FOOD and ATMOSPHERE!
We have tried several items on the menu and all has been great.
The chili with cheese is super - with hot bread - it's a meal in itself,.
Great cold beer.

“My neighborhood spot!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

The food is excellent, CIA chef. It is cozy, but that is part of its charm. Nice selection of craft and imported beer on tap.

“Love the Beech Tree”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

I first started going to the Beech Tree in 1995, when I got a job in Poughkeepsie. I've been to this restaurant on and off now for nearly 20 years and I can honestly say it doesn't disappoint. We went again last night, before a show at The Bardavon, and enjoyed another good quality meal at good prices. Yes, it's loud and yes the bar was packed with patrons waiting for tables...but isn't that good sign...a busy establishment?

We skipped apps, knowing that a large, full salad with yummy balsamic dressing is served with all entrees (other dressings are offered but the balsamic is a great choice). We enjoyed a flight of beers and a hard cider and entrees of hanger steak and pulled pork. Thoroughly enjoyable and brought quickly when the server knew we had a show to catch.

Dinner with tax and tip was $60.

This not one of Poughkeepsie's newest and trendiest spots. But I picked Beech Tree over all the other "hot" new places because I knew I could count on a well prepared meal with nice service and good prices.
